The 2015 Texas Revolution season was the team's sixteenth season as a professional indoor football franchise, third as the "Texas Revolution", and first as a member of Champions Indoor Football (CIF). One of nine teams in the CIF for the 2015 season, the Revolution played their home games at the Allen Event Center in Allen, Texas.

The Revolution played under the direction of head coach Devin Wyman.[1] The team was led by first-year coach Wendell Davis from the start of the season until he was let go after four regular season games on March 30, 2014.[2][3]

Season summaryEdit

The Revolution's announced schedule for the 2015 season was disrupted when the New Mexico Stars abruptly postponed their entry into the league on February 21, just one week before the season began.[4][5] On March 3, the Albuquerque-based Duke City Gladiators were announced as a late entry into the league, partially replacing the Stars in the CIF schedule with a plan to play 11 games in 2015.[6] The Gladiators' schedule has them visiting the Revolution twice, just as the Stars were supposed to, but replaces the road game originally scheduled at New Mexico with a visit to the Dodge City Law.[7]

Off-field movesEdit

The Revolution earned a 3–11 record and missed the playoffs in 2014 under first-year head coach Chris Williams.[8][9] In mid-July 2014, team president Tommy Benizio gave Williams a vote of confidence, expressing a need for "consistency" and declaring "I completely believe in him."[10][11] In late August 2014, the team released Williams and hired former Dallas Cowboys cornerback Wendell Davis as head coach and director of football operations.[12][13] In late September 2014, the team announced the hiring of NFL veteran Larry Centers as running backs and linebackers coach.[14][15]

At the end of August 2014, the Texas Revolution announced it was leaving the Indoor Football League for the new Champions Indoor Football league.[16] The team's 2015 schedule begins with a pre-season home game on February 27 and two regular season road games before the home opener on March 20.[14][17][18] Team officials cited the new league's potential for both growth and stability as well as a flexible salary cap among the reasons for joining the CIF.[19]

On February 12, 2015, the team introduced former Revolution running back Jennifer Welter as their new linebackers and special teams coach. Welter is the first woman to coach in a men's professional football league.[20][21]

On March 30, 2015, the Revolution released head coach Wendell Davis and named defensive coordinator Devin Wyman as his replacement.[3] The team cited the desire of general manager Tim Brown to "take a more active role with the coaching staff" as the reason for Davis' release.[1] Two weeks later, Davis was named head coach of the San Angelo Bandits and his first game was a win over the Revolution.[22]

On April 3, 2015, the team added NFL veteran Terry Glenn to the coaching staff as offensive coordinator.[23][24]

Roster movesEdit

Leading up to the 2015 season, D1 Sports Training in Dallas served as the team's new performance training facility. On October 4, 2014, the team held its first open tryout for players at D1.[25] A second open tryout was held January 3, 2015, at the Allen Event Center in Allen, Texas.[26]

For Week 4, the CIF named defensive linesman DeMario Dixon as the Defensive Player of the Week.[28] For Week 5, the CIF named kick returner Frankie Solomon Jr. as the Special Teams Player of the Week.[29] The league cited Solomon's 8 kickoff returns for 121 yards in the loss to the Dodge City Law among the factors for the honor.[30] For Week 6, the CIF named wide receiver Brett Reese Jr. as the Offensive Player of the Week.[31]

For Week 8, the CIF named defensive lineman Robert Williams as the Defensive Player of the Week.[32] For Week 9, the CIF named quarterback Robert Kent as the Offensive Player of the Week.[33] For Week 12, the CIF named defensive lineman Taylor McCuller as the Defensive Player of the Week.[34] For Week 13, the CIF again named quarterback Robert Kent]] as the Offensive Player of the Week.[35][36]

On June 6, the CIF announced the winners of its year-end awards. The Texas Revolution were honored for Dance Team of the Year and Community Relations of the Year, defensive lineman DeMario Dixon was named Defensive Player of the Year, and defensive lineman Robert Williams was named Rookie of the Year.[37]
